Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Locating brick in Silverdale, Washington

    Hello I am new to the forum, and the idea of wood ovens. I need to locate a brick supplier in the Silverdale, Washington state area. Mutual Material say they have fire brick, when asked if it was a ow duty fire brick the reply was weonly carry one type. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    I talked to the Mutual Material factory in Spokane. The guy in engineering that I spoke with told me their firebrick is rated to either 1800 or 1900 degrees F (I can't remember which). From the research that I did on-line that appears to coincide with the rating of "low duty" or "light duty" firebrick. Low or light duty is what James and Jim suggest using. You're not likely to exceed that temp in a wood fired oven from what I read. You can get extra high duty brick from EJ Bartells in the Seattle area. That's way too much for this type of project. Bartells were "stock-out" on low duty brick and didn't know when they would get any.

      An ordinary masonry supply that has only one kind of firebrick will be the "low duty" or fireplace grade brick. In general, you would have to go to a specialty refractory materials dealer, that sells specialized brick for boilers and kilns to get anything else.

          And those high temp bricks will cost you 4 or 5 bucks a piece for new ones! I lucked out and got 250 of them for 20 bucks from a guy that didnt know what he had.
